PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) - AT&T; has decided to withdraw an application to install a 130-foot cell tower in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, after residents voiced their opposition.

The Portsmouth Herald reports (https://bit.ly/U0BorT) staff attorney Brian Grossman said AT&T; is re-evaluating its network priorities, including the best way to improve wireless coverage within Portsmouth.

The company said, though, that customer demand is growing. It says 70 percent of its customers have smartphones and the amount of data handled by the national networks doubled between 2011 and 2012.
